    "I totally agree that this is a regression from the previous version". Well, bring back the previous, far superior export workflow version then! EVERYBODY HATES THIS STUPID EXPORT THING SOOOO MUCH. BRING BACK THE OLD ONE (which had NOTHING wrong with it).

    All,


    first of all I wanted to thank everyone for making this a productive conversation over the last couple of days.


    As several people responded to my comment about keeping the tone civilised, I need to dwell on that for a minute. Please hear me out, this is important to everyone on my crew and I hope it will be to you.


    Saying that we shouldn't be surprised when things get heated is very problematic in my opinion. How do you expect a junior person on my team to respond to a technical question when it is combined with something that can easily be described as hate speech? How do you think we can actually come together on actual issues when there's already the assumption that we're a big faceless corporation, not even listening to our customers?


    People on my team have received threats. I've been there over the years,…

    Before I go on and on, a quick message:
    Adobe, THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE PREVIOUS EXPORT SYSTEM, AND THE NEW ONE IS ABYSMAL. EVERYBODY HATES IT.

    I endured this hopeless, broken, unintuitive and, above all, pointless piece of junk throughout its unfortunate birth during the Beta program. I objected in the strongest possible terms at every stage of this disgusting monstrosity's horrendously misjudged development. THERE WAS NOTHING WRONG WITH THE PREVIOUS WORKFLOW. Adobe, if you want to "fix stuff", why not actually FIX STUFF rather than break a perfectly good workflow, with some of the worst UI/UX design ever vomited into an application.

    For the users who are only just seeing this freakishly disgusting, amateurish example of The Worst Programmers And Designers Ever At Work, you will, eventually, get used to it - in the same way that you might get used to living next to a railway track or slaughterhouse. It is utterly terrible, but if you distance yourself far enough from anything nice (eg. the previous export system), you'll just accept that your life has degenerated into a pit of despair, with no hope of anything ever improving, and you'll accept this is just "how things are" and eventually forget about the good times. Thanks, Adobe.

    ...but maybe out of interest: If anyone at Adobe has access to an older version of PPro, just bring up that old-style export box, and allow that warm glow of "how things used to be so much better" wash over you - not that you deserve it - and wonder who decided to ruin it all, with this unfathomably stupid waste of time export workflow. I trust whoever devised this export workflaw* has been unceremoniously sacked, for showing such contempt for PPro's users? I'm sure I'm not alone in hoping that the creator of this clusterfuck is never ever allowed to stick their extreme dim-wittedness into any area of software development/design again.

    *That was deliberate.

    There really is NO POINT in having guides if the mask points don't snap to them!

    Huh. I just posted an idea exactly like this...then saw you'd already suggested it! I agree, now that 4K and higher resolution screens are commonplace, the Poster Frame/Thumbnail in the Project Panel is often really small. It'd be nice to be able to right-click it (or use a new option in the little Project menu, underneath Thumbnail Transparency Grid maybe) and set it to a larger size.

    I have been moaning about this god-awful export atrocity for months (in the Beta version) to no avail. It is a major step backwards in EVERY way (more mouse clicks to achieve the same thing) and offers absolutely NO advantages over the previous, FAR superior workflow. It would be heroic of Adobe to admit this is a terrible mistake, and go back to the wonderful, simple, quick, efficient export system we all loved and had NO problems with. Why "fix" something that's not broken?!

    Hi Paul, 

    We have made the change you suggested. You can try it out in the beta version of v23.4 (there's no problem with having both the beta and shipping versions of our products installed at the same time) or you can wait until next month when it will be included in the next release. 

    Thanks very much for the suggestion!

    Regards,

    Fergus

    THANK YOU! This will save me a lot of unnecessary clicks in my workflow! It's so nice when a suggestion comes to fruition. If only the intractable Illustrator team would listen to its customers like the AE/PPro/AME team does, then we could drag that godforsaken app kicking and screaming into the 21st Century!

    I'd also like a snapshot feature in PPro EXACTLY like AE's one (shift-F5 to F8 takes a snapshot, then pressing F5 to F8 shows that snapshot). It's perfect for comparing shots, especially when doing stuff like colour grading.

    Or am I mistaken, and PPro already has something like this? I know I can click the camera icon and export a still frame, but that's not what I'm talking about.

    Maybe there's a limitation on the internal video buffer size or something...but when I have 128GB RAM and 24GB VRAM, I'd have thought this limitation should be increased. OR - be able to zoom in above 200% if you've viewing the comp with Region of interest turned on (currently it makes no difference - it's limited to 200% on an 8K comp).

    This is not a bug, it’s as designed. We specifically limit the visibility to one track at a time to avoid accidentally burning in multiple tracks. Also, when exporting to a format that only supports one captions stream like SRT or STL, we need to know which is the active track in order to export the correct track.

    But I understand why you might need two tracks visible at the same time.

    Multiple speakers:
    If we could automatically identify speakers and designate a style associated with them, would that help? For example speaker 1 is blue and on the left, speaker 2 is yellow and on the right?

    Multiple languages:
    Do you ever need to burn in both at the same time or is it just a matter of being able to see both to aid in translation and alignment?

    Thanks for the feedback, we really are listening :)
